So I was looking for a place to eat out for our November family birthday celebration dinner when i was at the Barnes & Noble store the other day, and noticed Lupe Tortilla. We have never eaten there, but thought it might be a place to check out. Any recs or reviews?

It's decent. Their fajitas are pretty good if you like a heavy lime flavor. Flautas are also good. They give you free beans to dip your chips in and I love those things. All the other stuff I've had there is pretty pedestrian.

Second for it's decent. I enjoy their ground beef enchiladas, wife just gets a quesadilla.

It's good. Service can usually be a little iffy. Expect to spend about 1/3 more than you would at most other Mexican places.

Somewhere between fair and decent seems about right to me but I know some people who love it. Their prices seem noticeably higher than other comparable places.

I would also say fair. Service has always been terrible, but I kinda like the fajitas better than other places.

I like Lupe Tortilla.

I would rate it a hair under Abuelos but above Chuys, Casa Ole, and On the Border as far as the chain Mexican restaurants go.

You actually wouldn't expect it but the best queso is at CafeEccell. They actually have awesome fajitas too

I like their chicken fajita tortilla wrap with the crunchy tortilla strips and cilantro sauce. The chicken tastes like it was just grilled and not thawed out and warmed up. Their charro beans are legit, and a healthier option than the refried.

For a 'chain' restaurant, they are amazing philanthropists!! The founder and his wife volunteer with some great organizations in the Houston area. They personally helped our family several years ago when we were dealing with expensive medical issues! For that alone, I would choose them over another chain Tex-mex place but we also enjoy the food!!

Not so sure this is the place for your ad. And the queso at Cafe Excell doesn't compare to the one you had a La Bodega at the old location

Personally, I'm not a fan. The food was just alright and the service sucked ass. In my opinion, now that Ninfa's finally closed, they are now tied with Chuy's as the worst Mexican restaurant in town. I would actually give Chuy's the edge because the food is better.

I think the best Mexican food in the area is actually outside of B-CS. My go-to for good food is La Casita in Navasota. My favorite local place (mainly due to the drinks and decent food) is Los Cucos in Bryan. That one is CS is garbage.

If you want a really good Mexican restaurant, just past downtown on WJB is Corona's. Really good homemade Mexican food and the store next door has excellent homemade Mexican ice cream.

If you have kids the patio is nice. There are heaters out there and a playground for kids to play on. We like the fajitas, but it being so kid friendly is probably what pulls us there!

It's not pretty good. It's "meh", and way overpriced.

I'll have to try it. Personally, my #1 is the poblano queso at Fuego. Amazing.

Eh. You could do better but you could do worse. At least someone finally convinced the chain to get rid of their mildly racist terminology on the menu. Cheeken? I don't know how they got away with it.

While you are there, give their guacamole a shot. It is also excellent. Beware, the building is fifty years old and looks it.

Guacamole and queso mixed together is an underrated snack.

Average. Ba$terized Tex Mex for gringos. Spotty service.

Doesn't anything mixed with queso make for a good snack?
